I think once the novelty of "Oooh shiny and new" wears off, it going to fall in popularity, it'll be played more than TT but less than SR.

They're not. Caster + tank == ridiculous 2-man team. There comes a point in the game where casters can just 100-0 people in a full combo (without Ignite).

It's fun, but there's something that plagues it just like every other control point game: teammates who purely go for kills. So annoying.

i learned that kills don't matter, 15-4-10 with AP tristana, I thought I was carrying my team but our lvl 28 friend ended up first with a score like 0-10 nidalee and I finished last :X

if you want to win...:
take an udyr-like champion
build tanky/dps
capture points/rape people 1v1
profit.

Or, 2nd strategy :
Take heimer/Shaco
Afk on a point with turrets/boxes
Get lots of point for defending
profit!

I like it for the fact that you can stage a comeback easier and i won a 4 v5! but any way it seems less team oriented just run and get a post it feels like a game of headquarters on COD lets rush something suiciding till i get it..so it is fun i have one strategy choose rammus and roll to win pretty simple

SR is more strategic and team based objectives here are know but not told so we got to figure what to do ganks are initiated or not

To me, Dominion represents a very interesting strategic shift on the part of Riot. It's faster paced, less teamwork dependant and overall a much "shallower" game mode than the 5v5 games on SR.

With the coming arrival of DOtA2, it feels like Riot is trying to create a niche for itself that will allow it to survive the potential flocking of players back to the "original" game of DOtA.

I don't know if this anecdote is truly representative, but I'll share it with you - I play LoL with my kids. My 13 year old son has been fascinated by the game and learning more and more about the complexities and strategies. We played Dominion last night, and after a couple of games he sat back and said "Wow, that was fun. Hey Dad, can we sign up for the DOtA 2 beta now?"

There's a lot more to it than that, bro.
